As autumn arrives and the steady summer stream of outdoor events, rooftop parties and boat ride parties comes to a close, there’s a new tide of underground dance music parties flowing downtown in a familiar space.
DROM, located at 85 Avenue A, formerly housed famed club Opaline and bar/lounge 85A, the home of now-legendary underground parties including Bang The Party and Sole Channel . Drom has since been presenting live co…ncert events, and has become a regular stop on the live venue circuit for both established and up-and-coming musicians in the World Music, Jazz and Rock genres. Now, with a new schedule of late-night club events on the horizon and a beefed-up sound system, the venue has set its sights on offering patrons a proper downtown alternative to the pretentious bottle-service oriented clubs that have taken over the city’s nightlife.
The venue’s new push kicks off Thursday, October 6th with OUR HOUSE, a collaborative event organized by club impresario Jon Martin and collaborators Joe B, Nini “Eternal Sol” Juliano and Beverly “Likewater” Jackson, each of whom have been responsible for extremely well-received underground dance parties in the tri-state area over the past decade.
OUR HOUSE features a stellar lineup of underground talent, including a live performance by globe-trotting singer/songwriter MONIQUE BINGHAM, one of the most recognized voices in dance music today, and DJ sets by the legendary Danny “Buddah” Morales (who will also be celebrating his birthday), sub:culture resident and PreParty Radio broadcaster Delmar Browne and Mike Dominico of Loose Joints and Central Park’s famed Skate Circle.
Opting for a traditionally industry-centric and bohemian-friendly Thursday party to kickoff the new series rather than an overcrowded bridge-and-tunnel heavy weekend night, OUR HOUSE sets out to reintroduce and redefine a space that has long served the dance music community, by bringing together some of the most respected talent the underground has to offer in one of the most diverse and lively neighborhoods in the city.
